Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Honda CRV does not meet the safety standards for properly installing my booster car seats as it is missing the latch anchoring system to properly hook the booster seat. After talking to the Honda dealer which told me that the car should have come with it, I took it to the dealer to show me where it was and said that they don't know why my car does not have the latch.

1. initially, the remote door lock for driver side door started making a buzzing noise, but it still worked. 2. the interior door handle lever (plastic with a hard plastic coating) to the driver's door broke off..and caused several cuts to my was still possible to open the door by applying pressure to the stub of the lever. 3. the remote door entry lock (to the driver door) stopped working, but it was still possible to lock and unlock the door with the key. 4. today, it is impossible to open the driver's door with the key or with the remains of the interior door lever or by any other means that I can figure out. This is a very unsafe situation caused by the failure of several components that should last longer than they have.
